Edson's Rudder Post Stuffing Box combines a rudder post bearing with an above-the-waterline stuffing box for. We recommend fiberglassing the stuffing box/bearing to the top of the tubing when the rudder post is in place. This can be done easily using alternating layers of fiberglass mat and cloth. This makes the post a structural bearing and will help carry rudder loads with minimal friction. Custom sizes are available on request, but allow additional time.
